Greenwich

Home to the Meridian Line, Cutty Sark, the Royal Observatory, the National Maritime Museum, the Old Royal Naval College including the fabulous Painted Hall, London’s cable car, Greenwich Market, Greenwich Park and The O2 arena - Jitesh Patel can map it all. He's king of the map, taking his moleskin wherever he goes and documenting cities intricacies and skylines. We fancy a jaunt to Greenwich now, that's for sure.

Takes Two, To Mango

It take two to make a thing go ri-iiight. Actually it doesn't, it only takes one talented hand-drawn type artist (amongst other illustrative abilities) known as Sarah J Coleman or Inky Mole to get you all in a summery spin. Typography for Wild Bean cafe with TBWA Manchester for a tropical summer campaign. We'd like some of this mango business please!

Eat Less Meat

Harry Tennant's latest illustration for Liberation France for an interesting article about human's dominance over animals throughout history. A rather beautiful way to preach about eating less meat and moderate our greed! We think there's a lot to be said for moderative living - thanks guys!

Fresh Mangoes

It's summer, sure, it's hot, sure, but instead of reaching his cursive palms and dexterous fingers towards a variety of tantalizing ice creams, David Holmes has chosen to flirt with his paintbrush. He's been illustrating mangoes and by golly do they look like the freshest fruit around. I think we'll take from this discursive post that our next snack will be mango fingers!
